Bishop Robert Barron Celebrates Opening Mass at Harvard University's Catholic Campus and Gives Out Free Bibles!

Robert Barron, bishop of Winona-Rochester, MN and founder of Word on Fire, celebrated the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit to bless the beginning of the new academic year at Harvard University campus. Serving as the Roman Catholic chaplaincy for Harvard University since 1893, it is located on the outskirts of Harvard Square in the historic St. Paul’s Parish. Word on Fire also generously donated Bibles to our undergraduate community, which were blessed by Bishop Barron following the Mass.
He also delivered a lecture at the Interdenominational Protestant Memorial Church in Harvard Yard at 4:00pm on September 17th. The lecture was sponsored by Harvard Catholic Forum. Bishop Barron is the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and an important voice internationally in the mission of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Bishop Robert Barron's lecture was entitled, "The Catholic Intellectual Tradition" and was delivered on Harvard University's campus on Sept. 17, 2023.
Bishop Barron explored some foundational themes in the Catholic intellectual tradition, including God, the human person, sin and grace, society, and freedom. All flow from Christology, our understanding of Jesus, so that, as St. Bonaventure said, Christ is truly found at the center of all the disciplines pursued in the university.
The event was also co-sponsored by the Collegium Institute, the St. Anselm Institute for Catholic Thought, COLLIS Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture, Nova Forum for Catholic Thought, and the Lumen Christi Institute
